    Serendipity.....

    I've seen a few boats with this name. And a few clubs. Why doesn't this group have more members? Perhaps because many do not even know the definition of "serendipity". I'm fortunate enough to say that serendipity has played a pleasant role in my life at times over the years. One...

    Have you ever read or heard something that you discounted at the time, but then years later you find it was a profound truth? I don't recall where I read it or who said it or even the exact wording, but the general idea behind what I read was the following "When you need a...

    Because What Goes Around...

    I do believe in getting what you can out of what comes your way. Yeah I'm an opportunist. I don't think that 'everything happens for a reason' But I do think you can find 'reasons for everything'. Do you catch my drift? Cm
